Cylindrical Connectors with PC Tail Contacts

Cylindrical Connectors with PC Tail Contacts

For applications where size, weight, and electrical performance are of paramount importance, connectors designed to mount directly to PC boards offer clear advantages over traditional “crimp and poke” contact terminations. Air Electro combines expertise in mil-spec I/O connectors and decades of experience designing and building custom PC tail contacts to provide turnkey PC tail connector solutions.

Air Electro’s PC tail connectors are based around common mil spec connectors—including D38999, M28840, M83723, and M24308—and are intermateable with off-the-shelf plug connectors. However, they differ in their ability to mount directly onto a rigid, semi-rigid, or flexible PC board by means of special PC tail contacts. Contacts are offered in a variety of diameters, lengths, materials, and plating configurations to ensure a perfect fit with board-level hardware. Connector bodies are available in configurations optimized for use on electronics boxes. Styles include low profile box mount and jam nut receptacles, integrated PC board standoff feet, and traditional accessory threads—all of which are available with aluminum, stainless steel, and composite bodies.
